Making friends with Gumball Green


Time for a little confession:  the first time I set eyes on Gumball Green, I thought “Forget that!”  I’ve softened a bit:

Dig you Gumball Cajun

  • I Dig You stamp set
  • Whisper White, Cajun Craze and Gumball Green card stock
  • Floral District Designer Series Paper
  • Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Gumball Green FFIP (Firm Foam Ink pads)
  • Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write marker
  • Piercing tool and new piercing template
  • Daffodil Delight 1/4 inch stitched grosgrain ribbon
  • Rhinestone jewels
  • Stampin’ Dimensional

The Big Dump Truck definitely needed a driver!  It might not have NEEDED the sparkly hub caps, but they are certainly an improvement.  Work with me here.

I splurged on our new piercing tool and templates and I’m really glad I did.  The piercing tool is made in the same ergonomic model as the stylus that comes with the Simply Scored tool, and it’s very comfortable in my hand.  The template is much larger and I didn’t have to skootch it along in order to get a nice long pierced lines.  Definitely a lot of bang for the buck!

I cannot imagine getting this kind of ink coverage with our old style ink pads.  FFIP RULE.

Gumball Green is not a timid green by any stretch, but it’s a fun color to play with.  I would call it a Kelly green.  Matter of fact, last weekend I saw a gorgeous Kate Spade handbag at the Nordstrom Rack in just this shade of green.  I was sorely tempted, but I bought a new bag in Boston and the Rack’s price was a big savings but it was still Kate Spade if you get my drift.  The new Gumball Green bag will have to go to another home…this time.
